It is really amazing how much better you look, feel, and perform when you are properly hydrated. The little nagging things that can ruin your day like headaches, lethargy, brain fog, and constipation can many times be traced back to a need for more water in the body.


I would like to introduce you to my Magical 3F Water System. The M3FWS for you military/government types.


As you probably guessed, it is not magical but it is very effective and simple. The 3F stands for:




First thing in the morning.



This one is really important. Have some way to drink clean water with the impurities filtered out. 



It is weird to me, but lots of people think water tastes bad. There are so many options you have to make water taste better without adding sugar or additional calories. Experiment with different fruit and spice combinations to find what works best for you.


First thing in the morning

As you sleep, your body is using water so you need to replace it when you wake up. Drink 20-32 ounces of water right after you wake up. 


This will help your brain function better, keep you "regular", and get you hydrated for a morning workout. Drinking water first thing is especially important if you are a coffee drinker because coffee will further dehydrate you since it is diuretic.


I set out my water on the counter before I go to bed. Drinking cold water first thing in the morning does not agree with me, so this makes it much easier to drink.


Give the 3F Water a try and it will make you more alert, energetic, and feeling better overall.
